Unfortunately, "friends" often try harder to make kids who say "no" to drugs, alcohol and tobacco feel like outcasts. Home testing kits have emerged that protect privacy and provide kids with a socially acceptable excuse: "My parents test me."
"The ability of parents to test their children for drug use provides them with a powerful tool in detecting dangerous conduct on the part of their teens. Until now, this was information available only through police or health care providers. For parents to be able to hold their kids accountable through this in-home private testing process is a unique and powerful means to enhancing health and safety," says Donovan W. Abbott, Director of Public Safety of Fridley.
Employers use testing to rid the workplace of substance abuse. Schools, police, community leaders and parents can now work together to ensure safer schools and homes. Kids can use it to prove their trustworthiness to their parents and dissolve unwanted pressure from peers.
Private and confidential vouchers for test kits are available electronically by visiting testmyteen.com.
